Isn’t Holi one of the most fun festivals out there? The colour, music and playful atmosphere make it a true joy to celebrate. Unfortunately, the dyes used can really wreak havoc on your hair, skin and nails. Don’t worry though, here are some fabulous products that can help you out during this time.
1. Tangle Teezer The Original
Before you step into the shower, use a brush or comb to shake the loose powder out of your hair. This gentle hairbrush does a great job at detangling hair, without causing any breakage or damage. Start from the ends and slowly move upwards.
2. Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask
Holi colours can dry out your hair. To replenish your mane’s moisture, liberally slather on this creamy hair mask. Enriched with argan oil, it works to deeply moisturise hair. Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes after shampooing your strands to get soft, glossy and manageable locks.
3. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil
Now, it’s time to tackle the most important part of your body – your face! Since dyes can penetrate your skin, it’s important to use a cleansing oil to dissolve the dirt and impurities. This formula is great at providing a deep cleanse, without clogging up skin or irritating it. I recommend massaging in the oil before emulsifying it with water so that you can effectively remove any residue.
4. The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
Once your face is properly cleansed, it’s time to treat it. An aloe-based cream like this one cools skin down instantly, whilst hydrating it. Since it is formulated without any fragrance, colour, preservatives or alcohol, it is one of the most calming moisturisers to use.
5. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer® Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45
From sunburn to colourful powders, there are many factors that can increase your face’s sensitivity. To keep your skin protected from any further UV damage, you must apply a broad spectrum sunscreen. This non-greasy one feels weightless on skin and absorbs quickly.
6. Nivea Nourishing Body Milk
Don’t forget about moisturising the rest of your body! Comprised of almond oil, this body milk sinks into skin to keep it supple and hydrated. Apply it on damp skin to go the extra mile.
7. Sally Hansen Cuticle Massage Cream
Nails are the one thing that prove if you’ve really played Holi or not! Slather on this apricot oil-based cuticle cream to prevent your nails from splitting and drying out due to all the colour.
8. Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15
Infused with wheat germ, avocado and olive oil, this luxurious lip balm will rejuvenate your chapped and flaky lips in no time. Use it twice a day until your pout returns to its natural, plush state.
